Overview

Golf for Women magazine calls Alice Dye "the woman who changed the way we play the game." Hall of Fame golfer Nancy Lopez says, "Alice is one of the greatest amateur golfers ever." Husband and revered golf course architect Pete Dye adds, "She has a great understanding of the game of golf and a keen eye for course design."

Twice United States Senior Women's Amateur Champion and member of the victorious 1970 United States Curtis Cup team, Alice has influenced the game of golf for more than fifty years through her work as a member of the USGA committees, the first woman board member of the PGA of America, and the first woman president of the American Society of Golf Course Architects.

In From Birdies to Bunkers, Alice Dye shares her personal, passionate, and funny experiences of a life on and off the course — playing with the great Babe Didrikson Zaharias, dining with Tiger Woods, her pioneering efforts on behalf of women golfers, and working with Pete to design many of the world's greatest golf courses. In addition, the magical names of Nancy Lopez, Arnold Palmer, Jack and Barbara Nicklaus, Byron Nelson, President George H. Bush, and others are woven throughout, providing a book that will improve your knowledge of golf and perhaps your own game.
